One of the best moments of summer is when all of the stone fruits come into season. There is just something so wonderful about having peaches, nectarines, apricots, and plums all so readily available.

Now, of course, we are so lucky that we can buy frozen fruit all year round, so we don’t have to wait just for summer for these wonderful fruits. But, again, there is just something special about a fresh, ripe stone fruit that literally drips down your arm as you eat it.

Why You Need This Recipe

  • If you are looking to make this vegan ice cream recipe when peaches aren’t in season, you can use frozen peaches.
  • You can make homemade peach ice cream in just a few steps (be sure to check out my post on how to make homemade ice cream without a machine if that applies to you).
  • You can use either white peaches or yellow peaches for this recipe. White peaches tend to be naturally sweeter, but yellow peaches offer a nice bit of acidity that works well for this recipe. You can use either type, though.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Gather your ingredients. You’ll need about four whole peaches or two cups of sliced frozen peaches.

Step Two

Blend the peaches, coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla in the base of a high-speed blender. I recommend using a Vitamix or Blendtec for the best results.

You can use a cup of pitted dates if you prefer them over maple syrup. Some people think that using dates counts as a whole food sweetener and makes this recipe appropriate for no added sugar diets.

Step Three

Churn the peach ice cream mixture in an ice cream maker (or use the freezer method if you don’t have an ice cream maker).

Please see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Four

Freeze the mixture until the ice cream reaches the desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy!

This is one of my favorite ice cream recipes so far, it turned out so creamy and bursting with peach flavor (see all of my dairy-free ice cream recipes). I hope your family loves it too.

Recipe FAQs

What brand of ice cream maker do you use?

I got a Cuisinart ice cream maker at my bridal shower years and years ago and it has served me well. 

Can I use frozen peaches in this recipe? 

Yes, you can. I suggest measuring out 2 cups of frozen peach slices. Also, I wouldn’t chill the coconut milk if you are going to use frozen peaches.
